    1. Three-Dimensional Assessments of Intraocular Lens Stability With High-Speed Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography

      Three-Dimensional Assessments of Intraocular Lens Stability With High-Speed Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography

      PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of intraocular lens (IOL) optic overlapping on IOL stability and to determine the relationship between the capsulorhexis and IOL movement with the three-dimensional method of swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). METHODS: This study identified patients with age-related cataracts and divided them into two groups according to their anterior capsule and IOL optic relationship: total anterior capsule overlap (360°) and partial anterior capsule overlap (< 360°). Standard SS-OCT radial scanning was performed in all eyes at 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, and 3 months after cataract surgery, respectively. The obtained photographs were used for the postoperative ...

    2. Automatic three-dimensional segmentation method for OCT and doppler OCT angiography

      Automatic three-dimensional segmentation method for OCT and doppler OCT angiography

      A three-dimensional (three dimensional) segmentation method with intensity-based Doppler variance (IBDV) based on swept-source OCT. The automatic three dimensional segmentation method is used to obtain seven surfaces of intra-retinal layers. The microvascular network of the retina, which is acquired by the IBDV method, can be divided into six layers. The microvascular network of the six individual layers are visualized, and the morphology and contrast images can be improved by using the segmentation method. This method has potential for earlier diagnosis and precise monitoring in retinal vascular diseases. Each tomographic image is composed of eight repeat scans at the same position ...

    3. Characteristics of Neovascularization in Early Stages of Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Characteristics of Neovascularization in Early Stages of Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Purpose To classify retinal neovascularization in untreated early stages of proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) based on optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Design A cross-sectional study. Methods Thirty-five eyes were included. They underwent color fundus photography, fluorescein angiography (FA), and OCTA examinations. Neovascularizations elsewhere (NVEs), neovascularizations of the optic disc (NVDs), and intraretinal microvascular abnormalities (IRMAs) were scanned by OCTA. The origin and morphology of NVE/NVD/IRMA on OCTA were evaluated. Retinal nonperfusion areas (NPAs) were measured using Image J software.

    4. Axial elongation measured by long scan depth optical coherence tomography during pilocarpine-induced accommodation in intraocular lens-implanted eyes

      Axial elongation measured by long scan depth optical coherence tomography during pilocarpine-induced accommodation in intraocular lens-implanted eyes

      We used an ultra-long scan depth optical coherence tomography (UL-OCT) system to investigate changes in axial biometry of pseudophakic eyes during pilocarpine- induced accommodation. The right eyes from 25 healthy subjects (age range 49 to 84 years) with an intraocular lens (IOL) were imaged twice in the non-accommodative and the accommodative states. A custom-built UL-OCT instrument imaged the whole eye. Then accommodation was induced by two drops of 0.5% pilocarpine hydrochloride separated by a 5-minute interval. Following the same protocol, images were acquired again 30 minutes after the first drop. The central corneal thickness (CCT), anterior chamber depth (ACD ...

    6. Acoustic Radiation Force Optical Coherence Elastography of Corneal Tissue

      Acoustic Radiation Force Optical Coherence Elastography of Corneal Tissue

      We report on a real-time acoustic radiation force optical coherence elastography (ARF-OCE) system to map the relative elasticity of corneal tissue. A modulated ARF is used as excitation to vibrate the cornea, while OCE serves as detection of tissue response. To show feasibility of detecting mechanical contrast using this method, we performed tissue-equivalent agarose phantom studies with inclusions of a different stiffness. We obtained 3-D elastograms of a healthy cornea and a highly cross-linked cornea. Finally, we induced a stiffness change on a small portion of a cornea and observed the differences in displacement.

    7. Automatic three-dimensional segmentation combined with in vivo microvascular network imaging of human retina by intensity-based Doppler variance optical coherence tomography

      Automatic three-dimensional segmentation combined with in vivo microvascular network imaging of human retina by intensity-based Doppler variance optical coherence tomography

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive method for retinal imaging. In this work, we present an in vivo human retinal microvascular network measurement by an intensity-based Doppler variance (IBDV) based on sweptsource OCT. In addition, an automatic three-dimensional (3-D) segmentation method was used for segmenting intraretinal layers. The microvascular networks were divided into six layers by visualizing of each individual layer with enhanced imaging contrast. This method has potential for earlier diagnosis and precise monitoring in retinal vascular diseases.

    8. Automatic airway wall segmentation and thickness measurement for long-range optical coherence tomography images

      Automatic airway wall segmentation and thickness measurement for long-range optical coherence tomography images

      We present an automatic segmentation method for the delineation and quantitative thickness measurement of multiple layers in endoscopic airway optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. The boundaries of the mucosa and the sub-mucosa layers are accurately extracted using a graph-theory-based dynamic programming algorithm. The algorithm was tested with sheep airway OCT images. Quantitative thicknesses of the mucosal layers are obtained automatically for smoke inhalation injury experiments.

    11. Imaging and characterizing shear wave and shear modulus under orthogonal acoustic radiation force excitation using OCT Doppler variance method

      Imaging and characterizing shear wave and shear modulus under orthogonal acoustic radiation force excitation using OCT Doppler variance method

      We report on a novel acoustic radiation force orthogonal excitation optical coherence elastography (ARFOE-OCE) technique for imaging shear wave and quantifying shear modulus under orthogonal acoustic radiation force (ARF) excitation using the optical coherence tomography (OCT) Doppler variance method. The ARF perpendicular to the OCT beam is produced by a remote ultrasonic transducer. A shear wave induced by ARF excitation propagates parallel to the OCT beam. The OCT Doppler variance method, which is sensitive to the transverse vibration, is used to measure the ARF-induced vibration. For analysis of the shear modulus, the Doppler variance method is utilized to visualize shear ...

      Macular Thickness Profiles of Intra-retinal Layers in Myopia Evaluated by Ultra-High Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography

      Purpose To investigate the thickness and variation profiles of eight intra-retinal layers in myopia. Design Prospective cross-sectional study. Methods Young subjects with spherical equivalents ranging from +0.50 to -10.25 diopters and good corrected vision were divided into emmetropic (n=20), low myopic (n=50), and high myopic (n=30) groups. Retinal images centered on the fovea along the horizontal and vertical meridians were obtained by ultra-high resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT). Macular images were segmented into eight intra-retinal layers by an automatic segmentation algorithm to yield thickness profiles within a 6-mm diameter circle divided into central, pericentral, and ...
